A showdown is brewing in Washington as the White House prepares to release a controversial Republican memo despite opposition from the FBI, the Justice Department and Democratic lawmakers.
The four-page memo, written by House Intelligence Committee chair, Republican Congressmember [Devin] Nunes of California, purports to show that the FBI abused its power when it began surveilling Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in due to his dealings with Russia.
The memo is expected to lay blame on the actions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the same man who is the only official with the authority to fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
This comes as the White House appears to be preparing to release the memo. Can you imagine that? This is not the first time House Intelligence Chair [Devin] Nunes has been at the center of a controversy. Nunes later walked back his recusal.
Marcy, explain exactly what this memo is. It targeted somebody the campaign got rid of because of his ties with Russia. We can assume that it therefore downplays other things that we already know about, for example, that Carter Page, inwas being recruited by Russians.
And FBI kind of kept tracking him in the interim period because they were worried about his ties with the Russians.
We assume that there are a number of other sources for the FISA application. And again, those are all going to be downplayed in the four-page memo.
Well, Marcy Wheeler, can you explain a little more why the Republicans and Trump want this memo released? Well, they want to find an excuse to fire Rod Rosenstein. Rod Rosenstein—there are actually conflicting reports about when the last of these applications was submitted.
It was either March or April. And explain exactly what that last part is, why they want to get rid of Rod Rosenstein and how that will get them to Mueller. Rosenstein is his supervisor, because Jeff Sessions is recused.
And so, you need to, A, remove Rosenstein, and then put in somebody who would be willing to fire Mueller. People talk about the EPA director.
And why, Marcy, do the Democrats not want this memo released? Well, they argue two things. And so, normally, everybody on the House Intelligence Committee kind of goes overboard protecting sources and methods, protecting the secrets that they learn in the course of their business.
And in this case, Nunes has thrown that all out the window.It was really no surprise that Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented in the lastest death penalty case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Sotomayor expressed her views on it long before she made it to the highest court.
